“Youth”

Flittering
Fluttering
fast, floating minds.

Hyperactive,
amphetamined waterbugs
set loose
on an electrified, acid water pond.

Zipped
Zapped

wound
bound
like ultrasound

let loose and watch them fly.

Shuffle, slide
like powerglide;
walk slow,
but get there
fast.

Amble, scramble,
but in your way,
the walks the thing
you’re measured by.

sit a bit
and slowly slip
till surely sleep
will come.

Fantasize
Romanticize
wandered
squandered
mind.
